    Weird drum identification

    Had a bit of a look around for a drum to sort as a makeshift BBQ for my RSE staff, I found this but have never seen one before with the raised ribs and thicker gauge steel.

    Anyone seen one before or know what they were used for ?

    Yep, we had one on the farm for years. The ribs are something to do with reinforce for rolling them, I think.
